    The wyandottes were bought as pullets. If I got so unlucky as to get all Roos I will be mad.

    I can help you with the cochin bantams. The frizzle is a rooster and your non frizzle is a pullet. We've hatched some recently and they are the sweetest things.

    Thanks JaeG. That is what I thought although they both have combs the Roos is very pink already where the others is just yellow and no wattles. His has been pink since 3.5 weeks old. She is the sweetest of all our chicks. And he is feisty haha

    Now at 10 weeks I can easily tell the difference between the Cochin roo and hen.
